Every one here is so helpful and I need some info.. I just recieved my new(to me) 221 featherweight. Can't beleive it. Any way what is the difference between 221 and 221-1. On my machine there is no plate on the front that says 221. But the serial # AJ006606 matches the print out I have on Vintage machines. Can someone enlighten me on this ? I am so confused . Karen

I'd ask on the vintage machine shop. I don't think there is a difference - or much of one.

Thank you , when I took it out of the box I thought I had purchased a toy. I don't remember them being that small. I sent a machine back to HSN and decided to use that money to buy What I really wanted . My DH say Happy Birthday/ Merry Christmas etc. etc.. I said THanks , Love You Dear. It's so cute I'm almst afraid to use it ...Karen
